Lion Brand Yarns® presented Project Knitwell with a generous cash donation in December 2015 in connection with the publication of Project Knitwell Presents the Comfort of Knitting. This unique how-to-knit book focuses on helping families and caregivers alleviate stresses such as anxiety, sadness, and fatigue, and contains 7 basic patterns. Since 2016, Lion Brand Yarns® has provided Project Knitwell with several hundred skeins of yarn to be used in starter kits and project kits for program participants.
In May, 2014, Ronald McDonald House Charities of Greater Washington, DC (RMHC), awarded Project Knitwell a one-year grant to better serve long-term pediatric patients, to expand its knitting program to two additional sites in the DC metro area, and to publish an intermediate-level knitting resource guide for young people. This grant is a follow-on to a June 2011 RMHC grant which enabled Project Knitwell to establish a pediatric knitting program, create a guide for starting such a program in a hospital setting, and to publish a beginning-level resource guide for young people. Project Knitwell is extremely grateful for this support.
The Community Foundation for the National Capital Region presented Project Knitwell with a generous donation in October 2013.
Immanuel Presbyterian Church in McLean, VA awarded Project Knitwell a grant to develop a brochure, translate materials and expand its services beyond its current hospital focus to other organizations that would benefit from the therapeutic activity of knitting. We are grateful for their support.
